Node.js is an innovative event-driven platform, which is used to create scalable web applications. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles requests and responses between a server and a huge number of Internet users more efficiently than any conventional system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in difference between traditional platforms which process the info in huge chunks, it handles everything in little bits. As an illustration, in case a user needs to fill out several fields on a website, Node.js handles the info from the first field once it’s inserted, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In contrast, conventional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single user, but it really does make a difference when an immense number of users are navigating a site simultaneously. A few examples of websites where Node.js can be employed are online dinner booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, i.e. sites that offer quick live interaction.
